The Sustainability and Impact Club is open to everyone, student or not, with all kinds of background.

With an entrepreneurial mindset, we are learning how to focus on impact execution through sustainable challenges. While developing self-empowerment, innovative approaches and creativity, the club participants are networking and discovering the stakeholders of the impact sphere locally and globally.
